A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Mondays: the Little Bird

Hi guys. It's Britt. This week, I've decided to flip things around. My tire swing stories will be posted on Wednesday and Friday. I'm just too excited to wait for Friday to share this with you. 

A few months ago, I entered the Little Bird contest created by the super-talented author, Sarah Selecky. The rules of the contest were simple: write a story based on one of her twitter prompts. Stories were judged by wonderful authors, Jessica Westhead and Matthew J. Trafford.

Guys, I entered and I won!!!

One of the many fun prizes was publication in the the Little Bird stories e book, which is now available to download online.

The ebook is a steal at $2.99. If you want to check it  out, go to this link. You can purchase the digital download via pay pal, or if you don't have a pay pal account, there is an option to use a credit card.

After you buy the book, the link to download is available to you. The file in .epub format, which your computer should be able to read. If you aren't sure how to do it, let me know and I'll help. (Mom, I'm talking to you.)

The other stories are fabulous and well worth reading. 

Thanks, as always, for your love and support. See you back here on Wednesday.
